Learn More About Your Restorative Dentistry Options From Our Glendale Dentists

Written by Dr. McKay on Jul 21, 2015

Thanks to the marvels of modern dentistry, our Glendale restorative dentists can repair even the most severely damaged smiles. If you have suffered dental trauma, you don’t need to be afraid of the dentist’s chair. We are here to help you understand all of your treatment options, and, ultimately, to enjoy your stunning smile again.

So what types of dental solutions do we offer?

1. Treatments to replace teeth

Tooth loss is a serious health issue that should be addressed as quickly possible. One traditional treatment for tooth loss is the dental bridge. This is simply a small prosthetic—that looks like natural teeth—that fits into the gap in your smile. Your bridge is held in place because it attaches to adjacent natural teeth.

The modern innovation of the dental implant has given dental patients more options than ever before. The dental implant is the first replacement tooth that includes a replacement tooth root. The base of the dental implant actually extends into the patient’s jawbone. 

Dental implants can be used individually—one for each missing tooth. Alternatively, you can use dental implant roots to hold other, larger, prosthetics in place.

2. Treatments to repair a damaged tooth

If your tooth is still structurally sound, but it has sustained damage, our dental team can repair your smile. Small cracks and chips may be sufficiently repaired using dental resin—this process is called dental bonding.

For more extensive damage, our dental team may choose to apply a dental crown. Our Glendale dentists utilize revolutionary CEREC crown technology, so that we can provide you with a state-of-the-art crown in just one appointment.

The first step toward reclaiming your healthy smile is to give our dental team a call. You can also reach us using the Contact Us page on our website.
